Player Wire: Giants
Anderson, Sir Henry (New York Giants) (08/20/2006)
DT Sir Henry Anderson, a FA undrafted rookie, has made some of the coaches take notice. He is huge (6-3, 315) and Sir is truly his first name. "My mother didn't want me to be called Henry all the time, because that's my father's name, too. And she didn't want me to be a junior," he said. "So it became Sir." His mother's name is Fortress.
Seubert, Rich (New York Giants) (08/20/2006)
G Rich Seubert, who was the starter on the right side until Oct. 19, 2003, when he suffered a compound fracture of his right leg, has entrenched his position as a backup guard and center. He started in the opening preseason game for RG Chris Snee and filled in for C Shaun O'Hara (knee) last week.
Carter, Tim (New York Giants) (08/20/2006)
WR Tim Carter, who has a world of talent but carries a suitcase full of nagging injuries, seems to be healthy this summer and it's showing in his performance. Right now he's the absolute third receiver behind Amani Toomer and Plaxico Burress, especially with the strained quad injury that has kept second-round draft pick Sinorice Moss off the practice field for most of the summer.
Kiwanuka, Mathias (New York Giants) (08/20/2006)
DE Mathias Kiwanuka, the team's first round selection, has shown quickness and aggression in his two games and leads the team with 2.5 sacks. "He's quick, and when he plays he doesn't stand as tall as he does in practice," noted a scout. "He was too high when I saw him in [rookie tryouts] in Indianapolis, but he almost looks like a different player now."
Wilkinson, Gerris (New York Giants) (08/20/2006)
LB Gerris Wilkinson shows quickness and strength, had two solo tackles and a special teams tackle vs. K.C.
Cofield, Barry (New York Giants) (08/20/2006)
DT Barry Cofield is impressing the coaches and considering the lack of quality at the position he might even emerge as a potential starter.
